Kwessi Dunes is set deep in Namibia's NamibRand Nature Reserve, a vast desert wilderness of over 200,000 hectares. With its rolling desert plains and backdrop of craggy mountains and iconic red dunes, this is a place for soaking up the beauty of the colorful landscape, admiring the antelope that scatter the sand, and gazing at the stars that light up the night sky.
Here you'll find 12 cool and comfortable, air-conditioned chalets, all with canvas walls and thatched roofs. Each of the chalets has a separate 'star gazer' room, completely open to the sky, and the perfect spot from which to watch the night skies. There are vast desert vistas from all the rooms, the main area and the swimming pool.
